North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition (NCHRC) is NEXT Naloxone’s program affiliate in North Carolina.

While NCHRC would like to distribute free overdose rescue kits to everyone, the realities of a limited budget require our agency to prioritize people with a high risk for overdose. Overdose rescue kits are only available to the following groups of people: Current and former drug users, people engaged in sex work or people who identify as transgender, people on medication-assisted treatment, individuals leaving jail, prison detox, or treatment, and family members who have an individual living with them at an increased risk for an overdose.

Please choose the option that applies to you:

If you do not fall into one of these categories and cannot access naloxone in your community, please reach out to Jesse Bennett, Statewide Overdose Prevention Coordinator for the North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition at
